The O’Brien Center for Student Success is Merrimack College’s full service career and professional development center that offers students award-winning services essential for competing in today’s job marketing.
Two years ago, the O’Brien Center for Student Success asked 25 students what they wanted to be when they grew up. Their answers resulted in a campaign showcasing Future Success Captions found lining the walls of the O’Brien Center on the second floor of the Sakowich Campus Center.
Merrimack College’s annual Spring Career Fair took place this year on March 25 where the O’Brien Center for Student Success welcomed 92 employers, all recruiting for different internship, co-op, or full time positions. Close to 400 Merrimack students came out to network with the representatives and to learn more about the employment opportunities available.
It’s not enough to go to college and get good grades. Many employers expect students to graduate with relevant work experience, explained Dr. Heather Maietta, director of the O’Brien Center for Student Success.
